  author={Nicolas Ligier},
La majeure partie de mon travail de these a porte sur l’etude de la composition chimique de la surface d’Europe. Afin d’apporter une plus-value par rapport aux resultats de l’instrument NIMS a bord de la sonde Galileo qui orbita dans le systeme jovien de 1995 a 2003, une campagne d’observations depuis le sol a ete menee avec le spectrometre imageur infra-rouge SINFONI au VLT. Cinq observations en optique adaptative possedant une resolution spatiale d’environ 160 km et une resolution spectrale R… Expand


Evaluation of cometary dust parameters from numerical simulations: comparison with an analytical approach and the role of anisotropic emissions
Une methode numerique est developpee pour modeliser les queues de poussiere cometaire au moyen d'echantillons de grains de poussiere dont les mouvements orbitaux sont calcules. Le modele est appliqueExpand
11 Jupiter ' s Ring-Moon System
Ever since Saturn's rings were sighted in Galileo Galilei's early sky searches, they have been emblematic of the exotic worlds beyond Earth. Now, following discoveries made during a seven-year span aExpand
JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE): An ESA mission to orbit Ganymede and to characterise the Jupiter system
Past exploration of Jupiter's diverse satellite system has forever changed our understanding of the unique environments to be found around gas giants, both in our solar system and beyond. TheExpand
Mass Movement and Landform Degradation on the Icy Galilean Satellites: Results of the Galileo Nominal Mission
The Galileo mission has revealed remarkable evidence of mass movement and landform degradation on the icy Galilean satellites of Jupiter. Weakening of surface materials coupled with mass movementExpand
The sizes, shapes, albedos, and colors of cometary nuclei
05.12. Cornell Univ., Ithaca, New York. Toth I., Lamy P. L., and Weaver H. A. (2003) Hubble Space Tele- scope observations of the nucleus fragment 73P/Schwassmann- Wachmann 3-B. Bull. Am. Astron.Expand
Formation of the Galilean satellites in a gaseous nebula
A model for Galilean satellite formation was analyzed in which the satellites accrete in the presence of a dense, gaseous disk-shaped nebula and rapidly form optically thick, gravitationally boundExpand
Cosima – High Resolution Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometer for the Analysis of Cometary Dust Particles onboard Rosetta
The ESA mission Rosetta, launched on March 2nd, 2004, carries an instrument suite to the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The COmetary Secondary Ion Mass Anaylzer – COSIMA – is one of three cometaryExpand
The global shape, density and rotation of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from preperihelion Rosetta/OSIRIS observations
The Rosetta spacecraft reached Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (hereafter 67P/C-G) in August 2014 at an heliocentric distance of 3.6 a.u. and was then put in orbit around its nucleus to performExpand
In Situ Dust Measurements From within the Coma of 1P/Halley: First-Order Approximation with a Dust Dynamical Model
In situ measurements of the light locally scattered by cometary dust, as well as the local dust spatial density, are only available for one comet, 1P/Halley. These data were returned from the OpticalExpand
Hydrated minerals on Europa’s surface: An improved look from the Galileo NIMS investigation
Abstract The surface composition of Europa is of great importance for understanding both the internal evolution of Europa and its putative ocean. The Near Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS)Expand
